Publications for today's eWorld

Meet your maker...

Hi, I'm Jan Cohen, an Information Architect and Sr. Technical Writer currently residing in Keene, NY, surrounded by the high peaks of the Adirondacks. I like to think of The Shining Lamp as my brain child, a combination blog of sorts and business portal, which you can read more about here.

With a focus on a broad array of publications and more than 16 years in the business, my experience ranges the gamut from the research, layout and development of technical documentation, to the creation of today's state-of-the-art web sites. I specialize in publishing printed and online information that suits your needs, whether technical manuals, complete web sites, or the brochure or business card. Call or email me today to find out how I can help make your life easier, your customers happier, and your business more fruitfull.

Though this site hasn't been updated since 2006, I keep this site online for historical purposes. If you'd like to view what I'm using for my current online presence, see High Peaks Publishing, which is hosted on my own VPS (Virtual Private Server):
